Less Is More Week 12 - Recipe 'off centre'

Well, Lady LIM Chrissie and LIM Diva Mandi, have come up with the recipe of 'off centre' for cards this week - cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance - Now there's a challenge!
I normally do 'off centre' but not deliberately. Anyway this week I chose a digi image from Digital Two for Tuesday, which was a cottage image, but I have cropped it down, and cropped out the watering can and made it slightly bigger for the focus of this card. I watercoloured with my dye-based Big and Juicy Spice and Sunset pads. Sentiment is computer generated. May try another card this week. I am waiting for a new stamp to play with :-)
